Personal profile


Alireza is an interdisciplinary scientist who applies computer science and mathematics to tackle grand challenges in engineering, physics and medicine. He has worked in both academia and industry in many different roles from a computer scientist, neuroscientist, lecturer, electronics engineer, software engineer, IT consultant, data centre architect and full-stack developer to even an author!

Currently, he is developing mathematical models, computational tools and simulation environments for analysing the human nervous system by using molecular neurobiology. His final goal aims to provide a unified computational framework in order for the neuroscience community to study brain diseases at the cellular level by exploiting the power of cutting-edge supercomputers.

He is also collaborating with experimental neuroscientists from the University of Reading to get deeper, more than realistic insight into the human brain in his models.
